RESEARCH: HAIL REPORTS

06.07.2017

Around the world hail observations are generally sparse, and Switzerland is, unfortunately, no exception. With a specific reporting function integrated within the MeteoSwiss smart phone App, you can help improve these hail observations, which are at the very basis for any research on this topic and hail warnings. In the App, you may report hail of different sizes, indicating the location, either at the time you observe it, or later. There is also the possibility to report thunderstorms without any hail.

Take a look at the blog posts by MeteoSwiss, which explain the reporting function in more detail and with some images:

German: Gemeinsam den Hagel erforschen (posted on 28 June 2017)
French: Scrutons la grêle ensemble (posted on 28 June 2017)
Italian: Periodo estivo – periodo di grandine (posted on 30 June 2017)

The Climate Impacts Group and the Mobiliar Lab of the University of Bern, among which are researchers working with these reports, greatly appreciate your contribution to hail research!
